- The Artemis Society International Meeting Server is a "virtual world" in the CyberTeams MOO Server. MOO stands for "MUD (Multi-User Domain, or Multi-User Dungeon) Object Oriented." The CyberTeams MOO Server is based on a type of MOO server known as "LambdaMOO" developed at Xerox PARC.
- ASI MOO, the most completely developed concept for a lunar community, is a real-time server that allows multiple users to communicate and participate in a shared virtual reality environment. The ASI Meeting Server provides an environment for ASI and Moon Society members to meet and work on the Artemis Project and ASI activities, as well as a forum for non-members to find out what Artemis Society International and the Artemis Project are all about.
- Attractions in ASI MOO include the airlock, the topic suggestor, and the Luna City monorail system. So while you are in the MOO, you'll want to take some time to explore the virtual world as well as participating in the conversations.
- Moon Sims was originally established to present a concept for a lunar settlement using the popular computer game, The Sims. The lunar settlement developed in ASI MOO was used as the basis for the description. The project developed a few of the items needed to show what life would be like in the moon a hundred years from now but development ended with the advent of The Sims 2 and the subsequent waning popularity of the original version of The Sims.
- Moon Sims continues as an infrequently updated fan site The Sims and The Sims 2, and hosts a few other fan sites.
